      The phonetic or sounds-like translation for the word. A phonetic translation is based on the SSML format for representing the phonetic string of a word either as an IPA translation or as an IBM SPR translation. The Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, Australian English, and Korean languages support only IPA. A sounds-like is one or more words that, when combined, sound like the word.
